This is one of the old historic homes in Galveston. The were streets and streets of these homes some in disrepair but a greater number have been restored to previous glory.  I am not an expert in this style of architecture but I have found that most are of the victorian style with influences of queen ann and eastlake style. Most have the wrap around porches along with turrets or tower, with fish scale on the roof or facings along with irreqular roof lines and decorative spindles and gingerbread accents.   Some home were a combination of many different mixes and styles.
